How does meditation change “getting lucky” into a spiritual, transformative, multi-dimensional experience?

The journey from our “monkey minds” and chaotic lives to blissful meditative mindfulness is very similar to our journey from “just normal procreative/recreational sex” to phenomenal spiritual intimacy. And the journey is there for all of us, starting with…


A Safe Container to Explore Within

meditationThe first thing we must do is decide to be completely kind, loving, compassionate, and non-judgmental with ourselves and our partner. Within meditation, we come face to face with many things that we don’t want to admit to ourselves and things we have buried (often for good reason). We must bring compassion to ourselves so that we can look at these things objectively and bring them into the light so that they can be healed.

Similarly in intimacy, we must promise to be 100% kind and compassionate with each other. To become vulnerable and open, we must feel completely safe to express wherever we truly are at… This is the first step, and actually often the hardest.

Satya – Honest Intention:

Where are you at right now? In meditation, are you stressed out? Are you sad? Are you energized? Are you chewing on something? In our relationships, is there something not working? Are you worried? Are you distracted? Do you want the same things as your partner? Why are you sitting down to meditate really? Because you should? Because you desire true inner peace? Why are you wanting to be intimate? To connect? For physical release?

Being completely honest with ourselves and with our partner is the absolute foundation for the whole experience. If one person wants to connect and the other just wants to have fun, then no one will be happy in the end. If we sit down to meditate but we aren’t being honest with ourselves about where we truly are, then we won’t have any success there either.

We have to trust that honesty will take us where we truly want to go.

Dharana – Total Presence

Dharana is total focus on one thing. In meditation, it might be the breath, our third eye, a mandala, a candle, or a repeated mantra. This helps us to let all other distractions go, and as these distractions leave our minds we become connected to our innate inner stillness; we begin to connect with something deeper, older, and wiser.

In intimacy, we first experience this inner focus and then we bring that focus to our partner. Through eye gazing, focus, breathing, etc, we bring our total presence to our combined experience. We allow no distractions, no thoughts, nothing… We are 100% focused on our lover and what is happening in each moment.

Pranayama – Using the Breath

Our breathing connects us to spirit. We literally feel our spirit as we inhale and exhale. It calms the body and mind naturally and effortlessly and allows us to enter a meditative state.

In intimacy, we use it to relax the body and mind too. It can help us to not get too excited, and to help move the sexual energy up the energy channels and throughout the body. And since we are connecting with one another, it can also be used to create that connection. We can breathe together, literally mixing spirit, mixing consciousness – and this begins an intimate energy connection that starts to change everything.
